ITTERINGHAM, a pleasant village, 4 miles N.W. of Aylsham, is in Aylsham union and county court district, Norwich bankruptcy district, South Erpingham hundred and petty sessional division, Aylsham polling district of North Norfolk, Ingworth rural deanery, and Norwich archdeaconry. It had 319 inhabitants in 1881, living on 1442 acres, and has a rateable value of £1841. The parish belongs to the Earl of Orford and the Marquis of Lothian, the former being lord of Itteringham and the latter of Bintry manor.
The CHURCH (Virgin Mary) comprises nave, chancel, south aisle or chapel, and tower with one bell. It was restored and reseated in 1859. The east window [and] a window in the south aisle are filled with stained glass; the latter as a memorial of the late Rev. Robert Walpole, who built a School here in 1846.
The Earl of Orford is also patron of the rectory, which was valued in the King's Book at £5 17s. 1d., and is now consolidated with that of Mannington, in the incumbency of the Rev. Peter James Elwin, who has a good residence here. The glebe is 24 acres, and the tithes of the two parishes were commuted in 1841 for £346 5s.
The Primitive Methodists and the Wesleyans have each a chapel here. The Poor's land, 2 acres, let for 12s. a year, was purchased in 1699 with £8, given by Lady Potts, and £12 subscribed by the parish. The School was enlarged in 1873 to meet Government requirements.
